Saturdays are the new Friday for us. The work week concludes and alarm clocks don’t have to be set.
Driving – instead of biking – home from the bakery was a BREEZE!! I better not get too used to driving – I haven’t put gas in my car in months and it’s been nice!
Matt and I made a spaghetti dinner to go with our cinematic evening
Complete with a bottle of First Colony’s Petit Verdot! I wasn’t planning to drink, but Matt had this bottle open so fast! It was a gift from one of our employees – Martha – who is the manager at First Colony when we opened the bakery!
The wine was delicious – just how I like ‘em dark and fruity. And the initial nose reminded me of an ICE CREAM PARLOR! I have no idea why, but it was heavenly!
Note the glass on the left. It’s GIANT. It’s obviously Matt’s. Mine is large too – his is just extra extra large (TWSS!)
I came home from work yesterday to find this massive bag of tomatoes in our fridge!! Karen has a key to our house and likes to leave us surprises : ) She got them from our friends, The Train’s, house!
Within moments I knew exactly what they would be used for
Mom’s tomato sauce! It’s basically slow-simmered tomatoes with a can of tomato paste, herbs, and many glugs of sherry!
Served over whole wheat spaghetti and topped with basil
Just finished HP6. My Potter memory is SO poor!!! I can’t remember a thing about the series. I read the books so fast because the plot was speedy that I don’t think I absorbed many details. I’ve read them all and see all but the last movie and I still sit here and ask Matt “Wait, Snape did WHAT!?”
Matt on the other hand has read all the books in English a few times and in Spanish as well and can tell you every detail of every chapter. I have no idea how he remembers details like that.
I can’t imagine not seeing at least all the movies – it makes me feel part of society! Same with Lord of the Rings. I confess I didn’t read all of the books, but I am in love with the film!
Have a great night and a lazy morning!
